Chavadi means “village office”, Sai Baba is intimately connected with this place, as he used to sleep here on alternate nights, during the last decade of his life. Around the time that Dwarkamai was renovated, Chavadi was also upgraded. The mud walls were neatly plastered, huge mirrors were hung, glazed tiles replaced the mud floor and glass chandeliers were suspended... More

Adjacent to main temple. Must see as Baba used to sit here for meeting people for discussions with people.

It was a very good experience and we almost felt that Baba was with us when we visited Chavadi. It would be really good if the authorities could make it more disable-friendly.

A few minutes is all it takes to walk into this place and say a silent prayer infront of Baba. A spiritually charged place.

Babas Chavadi is located just besides to Dwarakamai. It is a very small place and there is a separate entry for ladies and gents. Though this is a very simple Chavadi, but carries a very historic significance. Sri Sai Baba used to reside at chavadi during night , he used to lit a lot of lamps at this place. It... More

Baba Spent Alternate Rights Here. It is a very small place. Gents and Ladies have separate queues. Gents are allowed where Baba spent his alternate nights. People are always sitting inside Chavadi, doing meditation or Chanting Baba's nama. You can go pray to Baba inside Chavadi anytime. During my trip, I visited Chavadi again and again.

We went to see this place after Madhyan Aarti. This place is little away from the Main temple and you may need to ask someone to guide you to get there. Though this is a very simple Chavadi, but carries a very historic significance. The irony is that the place around here has become too commercial.
